Fixin’ to Think About Running Workshop

November 12 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Have you considered running for elected office? Think you could do a better job or not sure what position makes the most sense for you? Now is the time to get ready to run in the 2023 and 2024 election cycles! If you have questions about the impact that running will have on your family, finances, and career, this workshop is for you.

There are many barriers that hold South Carolina women back from elected office. We recognize the hurdles women in South Carolina face. The system wasn’t built to support working women (paid and unpaid) nor women of all colors, sizes, shapes, backgrounds, and bank accounts. The Fixin’ to Think About Running workshop acknowledges all that and will help you pinpoint what’s inspiring you to run for office and figure out what position makes the most sense for your experience and interests. We’ll consider how running will impact your time, your family, your finances, and your career.

Experts in South Carolina politics from both sides of the aisle will cover:

  • Addressing Your Fears (You are good enough, smart enough, and people like you!)
  • Why are you running? (AKA: your platform)
  • You already have a network!
  • How will this work in my real life? (a personal checklist)
  • What about the skeletons in my closet?

The workshop will be offered concurrently at multiple regional locations across South Carolina as well as virtually. Check back soon for locations and registration information. Let us know you’re thinking of running and we’ll send you details on events in your area and/or via Zoom when registration opens.

Whether you’re ready to step up to the plate to run for office or you decide to support other women, the next step is to attend Spring Training: Opening Day multi-partisan campaign training for women in January 2023.
